WHAT IS SEMAGLUTIDE?
Losing weight is a challenging process. You might find yourself in many high and low situations where you’re seeing results and then you’re not. What if we told you we had a solution for you that longer resulted in any lows in your weight-loss journey.
Semaglutide is an FDA approved injectable solution for overweight adults with a BMI of 27 or greater. Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist that is administered once weekly. It plays an important role in controlling your appetite as well as your digestion. It is an incretin hormone and these hormones are released by the small intestine and then sent out to the body after you’ve eaten a meal to help lower your blood sugar. When the blood sugar is decreased this triggers insulin and then other sugar sources are blocked.
The way it works with improving digestion is by slowing down how quickly the food leaves the stomach which is called gastric emptying. With these two actions working together you will get the feeling full quicker and this will lower appetite and cause you to lose weight. Want to learn more on how it works?
